For over 25 years, Bob Sales served as the mechanic at Jay Leno’s famous Big Dog Garage. Sadly, Bob Sales recently passed away after the hard-fought battle with cancer. But he left behind quite the machine, and now Jay Leno is making it his personal mission to find it the new home to help support the Sales family.
This car is the restomodded 1950 Plymouth Business Coupe. It was the last car Bob Sales built before he died, and comes complete with a 425-hp 383 Chevy stroker engine, the automatic transmission, disc brakes, and air conditioning. Thanks to its limited time on a road, it looks virtually brand new.
Here, Leno takes the Plymouth for the drive, showing off its easy attitude and the sweet V8 rumble. A stylish ’50s coupe with the modern drivability—what more can you want for the comfortable cruiser?
Jan Leno is taking the sale of the car into his own hands, accepting bids at [email protected] All of the proceeds from this sale will go directly to Sales’ wife and family.
If you are in the market for the modernized mid-century Plymouth two-door, and want to help out the family in need, we don’t see any better way than this.
